Degrees and Certifications:
I am thrilled to be teaching Literacy at HBW! I have a true passion for what I teach, and I try to share that passion with my students. I have 11 years of teaching experience, a Masters in Literacy Instruction from Caldwell University, and I am a Certified Reading Specialist with an Orton Gillingham MSR 1-4 certification.
My goal as a 5th grade Literacy teacher, is to provide a safe, comfortable, learning environment for my students. Children learn best in an environment where participation, sharing and taking risks in the learning process are encouraged.
In my free time I enjoy reading, indoor cycling and spending time with my family. I keep busy with my husband, three daughters, and two dogs.
I look forward to an exciting year at HBW and can't wait to get started!
